Exceptional experience, impeccable welcome and simple and clear instructions. I spent a fabulous amount in the Grand Canyon and the view from above makes it all magical. The Eliott driver was super nice, I think just like me the other tourists will keep a very good memory. Experience to be renewed if the opportunity arises.

Amazing view. Helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon west is definitely a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended. The helicopter ride is a bit on the short side. We were taken to the landing place (with great view enroute) and then back, it would have been outstanding if the journey was a bit longer say 5-10 mins extra time in air to see a bit more of the canyon.

Well worth the trip!! Once in a lifetime experience. We drove from Vegas for the experience, we did arrive late ( there is an hours time difference between Nevada and Arizona, Arizona is an hour ahead ) but the flight team were very accommodating, which we are so grateful for. Views fantastic, great photo and video opportunities.
